A zoo keeper was killed in the alligator enclosure of the Naples Zoo, while he was attempting to sexually assault a 12 foot long reptile.
A spokesman of the NPD, Captain Henri White, the 24-year old Jimmy Olsen was engaged in full action with one of the younger reptiles, when he was surprised by one of the larger animals which attacked from behind.
According to reports, he was caught by the throat by the alligator, who dragged him underwater. Jimmy Olsen’s death took place around 7:00 AM this morning, but his disappearance was noticed only an hour later by other employees. They finally discovered his dismembered body floating in the pool of the alligator enclosure around 8:30.
“The CCTV footage and images show that Mr Olsen had clearly placed himself in a very vulnerable position,” Captain White told reporters. “He had his pants around his knees and was lying down on top of one the animals, with his back to the others. We can see him being dragged in the water, then he disappears from sight. He was probably dead within thirty seconds of the attack.”
In 2002, three employees of the Columbus zoo were condemned, after it was revealed that the zookeepers allowed people into the zoo after business hours for the purpose of copulation with the animals.
